The Internship is open to Canadian Citizens and landed immigrants.
The Gzowski interns will each receive a week of training in the
basics of Radio Production at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in
Toronto. Each will spend the rest of the internship in a different

will get first-hand experience in contributing to radio programming
in a variety of ways.
Each Gzowski intern will receive a weekly salary and be compensated for all travel and accommodation related to training for the internship.
